Comptia A+


What is it?

CompTIA A+ certified professionals are proven problem solvers. They support today’s
core technologies from security to cloud to data management and more. CompTIA
A+ is the industry standard for launching IT careers into today’s digital world.

Why is it different?

CompTIA A+ is the only industry recognized credential with performance-based items to prove
pros can think on their feet to perform critical IT support tasks in the moment. It is trusted by
employers around the world to identify the go-to person in end point management & technical
support roles. CompTIA A+ is regularly re-invented by IT experts to ensure that it validates core
skills and abilities demanded in the workplace.

About the exam

CompTIA A+ is the preferred performance-based qualifying credential for technical support and
IT operational roles. A+ certified professionals identify issues and problem solve more effectively
than those without certification. CompTIA A+ supports the ability to connect users to the data
they need to do their jobs regardless of the devices being used. In order to receive the CompTIA A+
certification, candidates must pass two exams: Core 1 (220-1001) and Core 2 (220-1002).

Successful candidates will have the skills to:

• Support basic IT infrastructure, including endpoint management, advanced device connectivity
troubleshooting, and basic networking

• Configure and support PC, mobile and IoT device hardware, including components, connectors
and peripherals
